Its not actually Bondo. I used a two part resin filler (the brand was Universal, as used on boat hulls) with polymer fibres as the additive.
Can you give me the brand name of that material, and how difficult it is to mix and apply?I have been using epoxy putty, and it becomes very expensive.
Also ..where can I find it?

WB- this is the stuff i use.

Epiglass HT9000 Fast | International

its not that cheap but it is really good stuff (takes a couple of hours to go off though.

its easy to use. approx 1:5 mix with filer powder to achieve the consistancy you require.

You need all that stuff? or just the filler powder?

its not that clear on the web site i sent you, but you need the resin, hardner and the filler powder. I will get the item codes off the tins when i get home from work and let you know.

totally finished :) :) :) , i really am glad this bit is over. The only problem i have is the shape of the cod where it bends around the sides. When i put the girth belt on the cod tries to push the girth belt outwards, and you can see gaps between the cords on the belt. Any ideas anyone?

i have also included a pic of the girth belt because it is b1oody fantastic. Thank you sooooooooooo much Christi

WOW!!!!:eek: Jon I may have to have you do this for me. Wink Wink
How I missed this is beyond me but I have to say your build up is amazing.
I'd see if you could maybe heat it up a bit and flex it in? What are the attachment pieces?
OH and your very welcome, really... it was due.

When you put your ammo belt on and the side pouches, that will probably be covered.

Nice work! (y)
